We’re delighted to be welcoming John Portman of the Alzheimer’s Association to the hub on Thursday, June 14 for a Dementia Friends session.
This is not a training session for carers but an awareness raising chat for those (shopkeepers, other shoppers, for example) who may come into contact with someone living with one of the conditions, and how to spot the signs and allow for them (i.e. not being impatient in a queue, for example).
Perception can be an issue for people with dementia, so this informal chat highlights a few areas where patience and understanding is all that’s required by others to support those living with the condition when out and about.
The session will start at 3.15pm and run for around 45 minutes. All are welcome, but we would be grateful if you could advise your attendance to Jaye at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can set up in advance.
The session will take place in the final hour of our Cupcake Day for Alzheimer’s.
